    Hi
    I'm planning on studying AS politics externally this September, could anyone recommend which exam board is the most "easiest"(lol) AQA/Edexcel/OCR?

    Thanks

    i think it would be really difficult for anyone to say which was the best board as most people have only used one exam board for the subject as opposed to trying them all out and saying which one was the easiest out of them all.

    with that said, i was on edexcel and it was a good 2 years of studying govt and politics i dont know if its the best or easiest board as its the only one i've used but i personally enjoyed it and didnt have any problems.

    however, i dont think any of the other boards would have been easier or harder per se, otherwise most students would only use that particular board, it depends on the content and what aspect of politics you want to learn about so i'd advise you just research into the topic areas that each board offers and decide for yourself which one you'd enjoy learning the most
